John Mellencamp: Women Seem

John Mellencamp-Women Seem 01

Una canción casi desconocida del gran rockero de Indiana probablemente sea Women Seem. Y digo una porque con el otro “Boss” de la música norteamericana siempre existe la oportunidad de rescatar alguna composición que dentro de su extensa discografía habíamos pasado por alto. Es lo que ofrece alguien con tan larga y fructífera trayectoria, alguien que emociona con solo unos golpes de guitarra y la autenticidad de su voz disco tras disco.

Women Seem pertenece al álbum número 17 y segundo con Columbia Records, Cuttin’ Heads (2001), donde una vez más andaba desplegando y enriqueciendo ese sonido genuinamente americano compuesto de blues, folk, rock y gotas de country. Las letras de Cuttin’Heads, como de costumbre, son un repaso crítico a la sociedad norteamericana de la que siempre fue un personal y rebelde comentarista.

Y sin embargo no en este caso, ya que Women Seem resulta un divertimento, una exposición del propio John Mellecamp en clave irónica sobre su relación con las mujeres y un guiño acerca de los aprietos que provoca. El resumen de la letra de la canción es algo así como: me chiflan las mujeres, me encanta estar con ellas, reír con ellas, aunque te hagan daño y al final resulte de ello un considerable embrollo. En definitiva y a pesar de todo, sí, parece que nos gustan las mujeres.

John Mellencamp: Women Seem

LYRICS

Women seem to like me
They seem to like what I have to say
When they see me out in public
Women seem to look my way
Women seem to treat me so gracious
They sing me to sleep with a song
But there always seems to be a problem
Women don’t seem to like me long

Yeah Yeah Yeah

Women seem to want me
To stay with them all night
We have so much in common
Our futures really do seem bright
Women seem to forgive me
They seem to become my very good friends
But when it comes time for a commitment
The romance always seems to end

They tell me all their stories
We lay awake and talk all night
Maybe it’s me I don’t know
But in the morning there always seems to be some kind of fight

La La La La La

Well women seem to be so clever
I love all the jokes that they tell
Like my last boyfriend really hurt me in bed
Hey but you seem to fit so well
Women sure can hurt your feelings
They can burn you down and not make a sound
And then they call me up and say hey come over
My husband has just left town

They tell me all their stories
We lay awake and laugh all night
Maybe it’s me I don’t know
But in the morning there always seems to be some kind of fight

Women seem to love houses
I’ve bought a couple for one or two
Women seem to think all men are louses
And I guess I think so too
Women seem so much smarter
Than your average Joe
Women seem to be a little more intuitive
And when they lie nobody knows

Well women seem to know how to keep a secret
They don’t blabbermouth just for show
Fifty percent of their charm is illusion
And that is a good thing to know

Women seem to like me
They seem to like what I have to say
And when they see me out in public
Women seem to look my way

Yeah Yeah Yeah

Women seem to like
They seem to like what I have to say

La La La La La
